Re: Air conditioning muffler MMB7332AA

Are you changing it for cosmetic reasons only?
I have parts here, but they won’t look brand new either.
PM me for all details.

Re: How do I change the alternator belt?

Or constant screeching when driving fast means the wife doesn’t like your driving style.

Re: Selling my XJR 4.0A if anyone is interested?

you can always keep original bracket with a spare CPS in the boot, just to be safe Only if there's room once I've packed the spare ignition coil, alternator, drive belt water pump, engine ecu, coolant, oil, distributor cap and rotor arm and a spare set of plugs, overalls and comprehensive tool kit!...

Re: How do I change the alternator belt?

it is indeed screeching which stops after a while. Since I am an English minor I think I will be all right :) edit: when I change the alternator belt should I also change any other belt at the same time? I suspect that belts haven't been changed since early 2000s Ok. If the noise is only a screech,...

Re: XJ40 4.0 1994 "Joker"

if anyone knows where I can find a wheel cap for these alloys, that would be great because I simply have had no luck.. These are hard to find as you have noted. They have been NLA new for many years. Get the part number off the back off one of the other caps, as that will help when searching. The c...

Re: How do I change the alternator belt?

Thank you for all the replies :) I will check to see if there is any sound from the water pump or alternator. Just curious how would it sound if there was a bearing issue? Since you only said there was “noise”, we don’t know if that is only a slipping belt- screeching, or bearing noise- rumbling. I...

A wise plan. And you never know when you might need the spare Jag to spring into action.

Re: Dead in Battle

Ok interesting. The coils on these do not often fail. But any part can give up in theory. So you have a new plus spare CPS now too. I have snapped those terminals off before once too. Turning the nut a little too quickly that it was ready for. It’s a tiny 8mm but, so not very strong. Why so small fo...

Regardless of the lack of mileage, it’s always an achievement. We all know how much can go wrong in a year, even if it hasn’t moved.
